Adrianople, Oct. 17.,-Thirty thous
and Greeks and Armenians have pass
ed from this city to the west since Sat
urday, and the road between here and
the Maritza river is an unbroken 'line
of men, women and children with ox
carts, cattle and camels.
Through a steady downpour of rahr
,they are going doggedly toward their
unknown destinations, driven forward
by the nameless fear--which has grip
ped the. whole poculace of eastern
Thrace since the government's bulle
tins were posted on Saturday an
nouncing the terms of tie Mudania ar
mistice, which provide for occupation
of the province by the Turks withTh
15 days.
The members of the Allied misfls
.stationed here declare the cxtent -of
the refugee exodus indicates that the
Turks upon their entry will -find east
ern Thrace almost uninhabitegl.
The procession has been orderly,
but the misery of the refugees is al
ready extreme, anad pneumonia will
claim many victims if tlie present in
clement weather continues. The Am
erican in charge of the little .Near
East relief soup kitchen at the rail:
way junction on the o:)poslte side of
the' Maritza declared:
"In all my experience I never iiag
ined such a pitiable sight as the march
from Adrianopld in the driving rain.
Every refugee arrives soaked to skin,
with a wagon load of bedding floating
in water."
Perhaps' never in the 1800 years of
its stormy history, not even in the days
of the late Balkan wars, has Adrian
oplc witnessed such scenes.
When, on Saturday, the Greek civil
authorities attempted to reassure the
people by stating that the Turkish
gendarjmerie would not arrive for ,15
(lays, the Christian inhabitants simply
refused to believe them. Nearly every
Christian family in Adrianoplo/gather
ed u,p all they could carry, either on
their 'backs or on ox carts and as soon
as possible were off.
Meanwhile from the country-side a
similar exodus is under way and every
road leading to the Maritza is jammed
with humanity, cattle and wagons,
This whole flood converges upon a
single road as it approaches the Kar
agatch bridge across the Maritza. The
refugees believe that if they can reac
Karagatch they will be safe from the
Turks. This small village, which if
just across the boundary, will be i
neutral territory until the peace con
ference decides its fate.
